PREFACE. 



This book is the result of the labors of a Committee appointed by the 
General Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America, 
and is issued in response to the demand for a Hymnal especial]} 7 adapted 
for use with little children in School and Family. 

For school purposes, in addition to the hymns, a Service has been pro- 
vided, based, as far as practicable for use with little children, on the old 
Matin and Vesper Service of the Lutheran Church ; and as it is hoped 
that parents will find pleasure and profit in using the book with their 
little ones at home, an ample variety of Morning, Evening, and Table 
Prayers, and Morning, Evening, and Nursery Hymns has been inserted. 

In the preparation of this book the Committee haye, as far as possible, 
adhered to the principle of choosing only such hymns and tunes as com- 
bine substantial merit with child-like simplicity. In a few instances 
indeed, this principle may perhaps have been violated by the admission 
of hymns and tunes which may seem somewhat too difficult for little 
children. But this has been done only, when under certain subjects, 
and in the case of certain metres, a hymn or tune could not be found 
that was at once meritorious and simple to the degree that might be 
desired. Still, it is believed that the book does not contain a single 
hymn or tune that little children can not learn, provided they have a 



preface. 

faithful, persevering, and patient teacher. Moreover, children should in 
early life be made familiar with the best hymns and tunes, as only these 
will retain their place and influence, when mere childish pieces, like the 
toys of early years, have been laid aside. 

Grateful acknowledgment is made to Mrs. Harriet Reynolds Spaeth 
and Miss Mary Welden, of Philadelphia, for various hymns translated 
from the German ; to the Rev. E. Greenwald, D.D., Pastor of Trinity 
Church, Lancaster, Pa., for most of the Opening and Closing Prayers ; 
and to the Rev. F. M. Bird, of Lehigh University, for valuable assist- 
ance in verifying dates, and in ascertaining, as far as possible, the author- 
ship and the correct text of the hymns. In this part of their work, the 
Committee have encountered many difficulties. Quite a number of 
children's hymns are anonymous publications ; and the special subject 
of Juvenile Hymnody has not yet received that careful attention which 
makes it possible, in every instance, to determine which of several ver- 
sions is the original text. 

The Committee have been careful not to infringe upon any copyrights. 
If they have however unconsciously done so, and are advised of the fact, 
all due acknowledgments will be made in future editions. 
Christmas, 1884.

SUGGESTIONS. 

1. The teaching of hymns and tunes should form a part of " The 
Instruction." 

2. It is in accordance with ancient usage to use two or three Psalms 
at the same service. 

3. If possible, the Psalm or Psalms should always be sang. 

4. In the Opening and Closing Prayers to be said by the children, the 
Teacher should lead. 

5. To assist the Teacher, and to save the time for other instruction in 
the School, parents should provide themselves with the book, and teach 
their children the Service and hymns, and if possible, the tunes, at 
home.

O'er this glorious world of Thine ; 
Warmth to give and pleasant glow, 
On each tender flower below. 

3 Now the little birds arise, 
Chirping gaily in the skies; 
Thee their tiny voices praise 
In the early songs they raise.

Give to me my daily bread ;

Without whom I cannot live.

Kept me all night long from harm ; 
It is only, Lord, by Thee, 
That another morn I see. 

3 Lo ! the happy light of day 
Drives the shadows all away; 
Lo! it brings again to sight 
All tilings beautiful and bright: 

4 White clouds sailing in the air, 
Little flowers so fresh and fair; 



Greenest fields and rippling streams, 
Glittering in the morning beams. 

5 Father, keep me all day long 
From all hurtful things and wrong; 
Make me Thy obedient child, 
Make me loving, gentle, mild.

Let me sing, as well as they, 
Praise to Him who reigns above, 
For His mercies and His love. Amen.

And help us in that way to go, 
That so our walk with Thee begun 
May in Thy footsteps always run : 
Gladly to Thy courts we come, 
O guide us to our Heavenly Home. 



3 Let the sweet sunshine of Thy love, 

Still hovering, o'er us like tin- dove, 

Fill all our hearts and homes with joy, 

And all our grateful hours employ : 

Gladly to Thy courts we conic. 

O lead us to our Heavenly Home.

2 Alleluia Ave sing, like the children bright, 

With their harps of gold, and their raiment white, 
As they follow their Shepherd with loving eyes 
Through the beautiful valleys of Paradise. 

3 Hosanna we sing, for He bends His ear, 
And rejoices the hymns of His own to hear; 
We know that His heart will never wax cold 
To the lambs that He feeds in His earthly fold. 

4 Alleluia we sing in the Church we love, 
Alleluia resounds in the Church above ; 

To Thy little ones, Lord, may such grace be given, 
That we lose not our part in the song of heaven. Amen.

2 He; came down to earth from heaven, 
Who is God and Lord of all, 
And His shelter was a stable, 
And His cradle was a stall ; 
With the poor, and mean, and lowly, 
Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 

?> And, thro' all His wondrous childhood, 

He would honor and obey, 
Love and watch the lowly maiden 

In whose gentle arms He lay; 
Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good as He. 

4 For He is our childhood's Pattern, 
Day by day like us He grew, 
He was little, weak and helpless, 
Tears and smiles like us He knew : 



*=#=^ 



And He feeleth for our sadness, 
And He shareth in our gladness. 

5 And our eyes at Jast shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 
For that Child so dear and gentle 

Is our Lord in Heaven above; 
And He leads His children on 
To the place where He is gone. 

6" Not in that poor lowly stable, 
With the oxen standing by, 
We shall see Him ; but in Heaven, 
Set at God's right hand on high ; 
When like stars II is children crowned 
All in white shall wait around.

2 Yes, we know the story well ; 
Listen now, and hear us tell 
Every girl and every boy, 
Why the angels sing for joy 
On the Christmas morning. 

?> Shepherds sat upon the ground, 
Fleecy flocks were scattered round, 
When a brightness filled the sky, 
And a song was beard on high 
On the Christmas morning. 

4 " Joy and peace !" the angels sang; 
Far the pleasant echoes rang; 



I- 
" Peace on earth, to men good-will ;" 
Hark ! the angels sing it still 
On the Christmas morning. 

5 For a little Babe that day 
Cradled in a manger lay, 
Born on earth our Lord to be; 
This the wondering angels see 
On the Christmas morning. 

G Joy our little hearts shall fill, 
Peace and love, and all good-will ; 
This fair Babe of Bethlehem 
Children loves, and blesses them 
On the Christmas morning.

I'm glad my blessed Saviour 

Was once a child like me, 
To show how pure and holy 

His little ones might be ; 
And if I try to follow 

His footsteps here below, 
He never will forget me, 

Because He loves me so. 



3 To sing His love and mercy 
My sweetest songs I'll raise ; 
And though I cannot see Him, 
I know He hears my praise ; 
For He has kindly promised 

That even I may go 
To sing among His angels, 
Because He loves me so.

2 It tells me of a Saviour's love, 

Who died to set me free ; 
It tells me of His precious blood, 
The sinner's perfect plea. 

3 It tells me of a Father's smile 

Beaming upon His child ; 



It cheers me through this little while, 
Through desert, waste, and wild. 

4 Jesus, the Name I love so well, 

The Name I love to hear ; 
No saint on earth its worth can tell, 

No heart conceive how dear.

2 His human Name they did proclaim 

When Abram's son they sealed Him, — 

The Name that still by God's good will, 
Deliverer revealed Him. 
We love to sing, etc. 

3 And when He hung upon the tree, 

They wrote this Name above Him ; 
That all might see the reason we 
For evermore must love Him. 
We love to sing, etc. 

4 So now, upon His Father's throne, 

Almighty to release us 
From sins and pains, lit" gladly reigns, 
The Prince and Saviour Jesus. 
We love to sing, etc. 



5 To Jesus every knee shall bow, 
And every tongue confess Him, 
And we unite with saints in light, 
Our only Lord to bless Him. 
We love to sing, etc. 

f> O Jesus, by that matchless Name, 

Thy grace shall fail us never; 
To-day as yesterday the same, 

Thou art the same for ever. 
Then let us sing around our King, 

The faithful, precious Jesus. 
For there's no word ear ever heard, 

So dear, so sweet, as Jesus.

2 O'er the dusty highway, 

O'er the deserts drear, 
From the East the wise men 

Watch it shining clear; 
Asking, "Shall we follow 

In this starlit way?'' 
Answering, 4 " Yes, 'twill lead us 

To the perfect day.'' 

3 In a lowly manger 

Lies an infant weak ; 

Is it He whom wise men 

Come so far to seek? 



Asking, " Where the monarch? 

Where Judea's King?" 
Saying, "Gifts and worship 

To His throne we bring." 

4 In our hearts we children 

See this star once more ; 
Not as wise men saw it 

In the days of yore ; 
Asking, " May we bring Him 

Childhood's love to-day?" 
Answering, " Come, dear children, 

Jesus says we may."

2 Rolls the heavy stone away 
From the tomb where Jesus lay, 

Over Death victorious ; 
Forth in radiant majesty 
From the grave's captivity 

Comes the Saviour glorious. 

3 When the sun expels the night 
From the plain, and mountain-height 

Tips with rosy gleaming, 



Then the Sun of righteousness 

O'er this world's unhappiness 

Sheds His joyous beaming. 

So into your hearts of sin, 
Children, let Him enter in 

At your life's first morning, 
That with beams of light divine 
Be through all your lives may shine 

Till the heavenly dawning.

He who hied and died, 
Now is crowned with gladness 

At His Father's side. 
Never more to suffer, 

Never more to die, 
Jesus, King of Glory, 

Is gone up on high. 

All His work is ended, etc.

In that blessed place, 
Calling them to glory, 

Sending them His grace; 
His bright Home preparing, 

Little ones, for you ;

Ever loveth too.

For Thy Name is holy ; 

Learning every day to love 

With a love more lowly.

To our Elder Brother ; 
Growing every day more true 
Unto one another.

Something which might hinder ;

Hear us in Thy pity,

3 Once from heaven to earth He came, 
Suffered death, contempt, and blame, 
Died upon a cross of shame, 

Crowned with thorns.

Thus His precious blood He gave; 
Ransomed now from sin's dark grave,

When for us He stooped to die ; 
How I wonder, when I see

2 Once He was just the age I am, 

And was as helpless too ; 
He used to sleep, and walk, and speak, 
Just as all children do. 

3 And yet, though He was once a child, 

He is the God of all ; 
And angel hosts before His throne 
In lowly worship fall.

4 And why was it He chose to be 

A child so poor and weak ? 
It was that I might learn from Him

And, like the Child of Nazareth,

2 Where is the Holy Jesus ? 

His home is everywhere, 
He loves that little children 
Should speak to Him in prayer. 

3 Ouce He came down from Heaven, 

And became a little child, 
He was so good and gentle, 
Obedient, meek, and mild. 

4 He had no naughty tempers, 

He said no angry word, 



111 



And all good little children 

Should be like Christ their Lord; 

5 For He will make them holy, 

And teachable and mild, 
And has sent His blessed Spirit 
To every Christian child. 

6 Then every night and morning, 

When I kneel down to pray, 
I will ask the Holy Jesus 
To help me day by day.

2 And I, a little straying lamb, 
May come to Jesus as I am, 

Though goodness I have none ; 
May now be folded on His breast, 
As birds within the parent nest, 

And be His little one? 

3 Others there are who love me too; 
But who, with all their love, could do 

What Jesus Christ has done? 



Then if He teaches me to pray, 
I'll surely go to Him and say. 
" Lord, keep Thy little one." 

4 Then by this gracious Shepherd fed, 
And by His mercy gently led 

Where living waters run ; 
My greatest pleasure will be this: 
That I'm a little lamb of His, 
Who loves the little one.

2 O day by day, each Christian child 

Has much to do, without, within; 
A death to die for Jesus' sake, 
A weary war to wage with sin. 

3 When deep within our swelling hearts 

The thoughts of pride and anger rise, 



When bitter words are on our tongues, 
And tears of passion in our eyes; — 

1 Then we may stay the angry blow, 
Then we may cheek the hasty word, 
(Jive gentle answers baek again, 
And fight a battle for our Lord. 



120 



General ^gmns. 



5 With smiles of peace, and looks of love, 
Light in our dwellings we may make, 
Bid kind good humor brighten there, 
And do all still for Jesus' sake. 



6 There's not a child so small and weak 
But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise- 
That he may do for Jesus' sake.

2 There's a rest for little children 

Above the bright blue sky, 
Who love the blessed Saviour 

And Abba, Father, cry ; 
A rest from every turmoil, 

From sin and danger free, 
Where every little pilgrim 

Shall rest eternally. 

3 There's a home for little children 

Above the bright blue sky, 
Where .Je>ns reigns in glory, — 

A home of peace and joy; 
Xo home on earth is like it, 

Nor can with it compare, 
For every one is happy, 

Nor could be happier, there. 

4 There's a crown for little children 

Above the bright bine sky, 
And all who look for Jesus 
Shall wear it by-and-by ; 



127 



A crown of brightest glory, 

Which He will then bestow 

On all who've found His favor. 

And loved His Name below. 

5 There's a song for little children 

Above the bright blue sky, 
A song that will not weary. 

Though sung continually; 
A song which even angels 

Can never, never sing; 
They know not Christ as Saviour, 

But worship Him as King. 

6 There's a robe for little children 

Above the bright blue sky; 
And a harp of sweetest music, 

And a palm of victory. 
All. all above is treasured, 

And found in Christ alone;

He made their glowing colors, 

lie made their tiny wings.

The river running by, 
The sunset, and the morning 
That brightens up the sky ; 

5 The cold wind in the winter, 

The pleasant summer sun, , 
The ripe fruits in the garden, 
He made them every one.

The meadows where we play, 
The rushes by the water, 
We gather every day ; —

And lips that we might tell 
How great is God Almighty, 
Who has made all things well.

In this our festal day, 
To Thee for precious gifts of grace 
Thy ransomed people pray. 

3 We pray for childlike hearts, 

For gentle holy love, 
For strength to do Thy will below 
As angels do above. 

4 We pray for simple faith, 

For hope that never fain Is, 

For true communion evermore 

With all Thy blessed saints.

Thy face eternally ! 

7 Lord Jesus, God and Man, 

We praise Thee and adore,

2 Baby brother, baby brother, 

While I rock you on my arm, 
You are safe, my baby brother, 
No one here will do you harm. 

3 Baby brother, baby brother, 

Once the Lord of life and love 
Came, on earth a little baby, 

From His throne in Heaven above. 

4 Baby brother, baby brother, 

Jesus had a mother too, 
And she nursed Iliin and she loved Him, 
Just as mother loveth you.

5 Baby brother, baby brother, 

Shall I tell you why He came? 
That we might become His children, 
And be called by His Name. 

6 Baby brother, baby brother, 

Jesus came, and lived, and died ; 
Lived to teach us to be holy, 
And for us was crucified. 

7 Baby brother, baby brother, 

On our brow His cross we wear ; 
If we love as He has loved us, 
We His own true children are. 



134 



Hurscru* 



Baby brother, baby brother, 
Jesus rose again on high, 

There He waits to make us ready, 
Till He take us to the sky. 



9 Baby brother, baby brother, 

O how thankful we must feel, 

That the blest and holy Saviour 

Loves us little children still !

He sweetly sleeps, whom Jesus keeps, 
And in the morning wakes so blest, 

His child to be; 
Love every one, but love Him best: 

He first loved thee. 

3 O little child ! when thou must die, 
Fear nothing then, but say "Amen " 
To God's commands, and quiet lie 

In His kind hand,

Till He shall say, " Dear child, come, fly 
To heaven's bright land."

Safe at His side ; 
And thou shalt live before the throne, 
Because He died.

How much better thou'rt attended 

Than the Son of God could be, 
When from heaven He descended, 

And became a child like thee ! 
Soft and easy is thy cradle ; 

Coarse and hard thy Saviour lay, 
When His birth-place was a stable, 

And His softest bed was hay.

3 May'st thou live to know and fear Him, 
Trust and love Him all thy days; 
Then go dwell forever near Him, 

Sec His face, and sing 1 1 is praise.

Hoping what I most desire; 
Not a mother's fondest wishes 
Can to greater joys aspire.

2 Thou blessed soul, what canst thou fear? 

What thing to thee can mischief do? 
Thy God is now thy Father dear, 

His holy Spouse, thy mother too. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

3 Though thy conception was in sin, 

A sacred bathing thou hast had ; 
And tho' thy birth unclean hath been, 

A blameless babe thou now art made. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

4 While thus thy lullaby I sing, 

For thee great blessings ripening be ; 
Thine Elder Brother is a King, 

And hath a kingdom bought for thee. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

5 Sweet baby, sleep, and nothing fear ; 

For whosoever thee offends 
By thy Protector threatened are, 

And God and angels are thy friends. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

6 When God with us was dwelling here, 

In little babes He took delight ; 
Such innocents as thou, my dear, 

Are ever precious in His sight. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

7 A little infant once was He; 

And strength in weakness then was 
laid 
Upon His virgin-mother's knee, 

That power to thee might be convey'd. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 



8 In this thy frailty and thy need 

He friends and helpers doth prepare, 
Which thee shall cherish, clothe, and 
feed, 

For of thy weal they tender are. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

9 The King of kings, when He was born, 

Had not so much for outward ease; 
By Him such dressings were not worn, 

Nor such-like swaddling-clothes as 
these. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

10 Within a manger lodged thy Lord, 

Where oxen lay, and asses fed: 
Warm room we do to thee afford, 

An easy cradle, or a bed. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear; sweet baby, sleep. 

11 The wants that He did then sustain 

Have purchased wealth, my babe, 
for thee; 
And by His torments and His pain 

Thy rest and ease secured be. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my dear ; sweet baby, sleep. 

12 Thou hast, yet more to perfect this, 

A promise and an earnest got, 
Of gaining everlasting bliss, 

Though thou, my babe, perceiv'st it 
not. 
Sweet baby, then forbear to weep ; 
Be still, my babe ; sweet baby, sleep.
